TAke ibuprofin beforehand. Yes, it’s a bit awkward, but not too bad. This is their job, so I just try to keep in mind that they’ve seen loads of twats before. 😀

I have had a very painful brazilian, and I’ve had several not-painful ones as well.

The strip waxes HUUUURRRRT.  Like, so, so bad.

I have since been going to a salon that uses a hard wax and it doesn’t adhere to the skin the same way the strip wax does.  So, yes the hair is yanked by the root, but the skin isn’t pulled.  I very rarely have any redness, tenderness, or ingrown hairs.  They gave me an exfoliating glove and that helps as well.

@Pinkmoon:  get drunk.  im not kidding.

The only thing with getting drunk is that I believe it makes you bleed a bit more? 

To be awkwardly honest, I found my last Brazilian to be sort of zen.

Brazilian waxes differ from regular bikini waxes because hair is removed in the front, back and everything in between. A “landing strip” is typically left in the front, but some clients opt for everything removed. The procedure, like any waxing, can be very painful the first time, but frequent visits usually cut down on the pain factor as does 2 Advil taken an hour before your procedure. You can also apply a topical anesthetic 45 minutes before the procedure.
